At eighteen, most will be planning their post high school future, but not these boys. Kylian Mbappe, for example, is really thriving with a regular first team role at AS Monaco and scoring from all angles in the French Ligue 1 last term. He's being linked with Top European club sides this summer. These set of youngsters are arguably the future world best players, considering their present form and work rates at their respective clubs, and they steadily make the headlines. Certainly, they're the future of world soccer.

Here's a compiled list of the top four hottest teenage players currently making strides in the world of soccer:

1. Kylian Mbappe, 18 — AS Monaco

Mbappe was Manchester City's tormentor in both legs of the UEFA Champions League defeat to AS Monaco and went on to help Monaco clinch the French Ligue 1 title last season scoring twenty-one goals. The 18-year-old striker style of attacking was recently likened to former France and Arsenal striker Thierry Henry by Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. Kylian Mbappe is said to be the most expensive player ever if his purported move to Real Madrid goes through. The France international is also linked with a move to Arsenal, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

Gianluigi Donnarumma, 18 — AC Milan

Donnarumma is likely heir to Gianluigi Buffon's “throne” as Italy first choice goalkeeper. The AC Milan teen sensation is an “absolute giant” of an 18-year-old who could feasibly be playing at the top-level for the next twenty years. Before signing a new deal with Milan, Gianluigi Donnarumma was extensively linked with a move to Juventus and Manchester United this summer window.

Gabriel Jesus, 19 — Manchester City

The Brazil youngster has surprisingly taken the entire English Premier League like a “duck to water,” as manchester city even seem to be worse off with Sergio Aguero up front last season. Gabriel Jesus joined Manchester City from Brazilian side Palmeiras in August 2016 and went on to become the third Manchester City player to be involved in two or more goals in their first Premier League start.

Christian Pulisic, 18 — Borussia Dortmund

Only 18 years old but has eleven international appearances for the United States Men's National Team. Undoubtedly, Borussia Dortmund seem to have found an absolute “gem” in the American international.

In April 2016, the Pennsylvania born winger became the youngest foreign player to score a goal in the German Bundesliga. Later that month, Pulisic became the youngest player to ever notch 2 goals in the German top flight league. Really impressive.
